Balji beats Bertha at Facebook Likes, surpasses her in one day

Posted on 30 July 2013

The Independent trumps Breakfast Network, official time of Balji’s victory is at 12.45 a.m., July 30, 2013.

What happens when two ex-mainstream media old-timers have a go at each other?

A lopsided battle ensues.

New-and-not-even-launched website The Independent by ex-Today chief P N Balji has surpassed ex-Straits Times Bertha Henson’s Breakfast Network — in terms of Facebook Likes.

Breakfast Network Facebook page was launched on February 19, 2013. Over the course of five months, it has accumulated 1,640 Likes, which is lesser than the number of FB Likes Lim Swee Say has.


The Independent Facebook page, on the other hand, was launched on May 16, 2013, and has 1,641 Facebook Likes even before the website’s official launch on August 9.

The official victory timing where the The Independent surpassed Breakfast Network in terms of Likes was recorded at 12.45 a.m., July 30, 2013.


Balji now officially holds the Guinness Book of Records title for “Ex-mainstream-media-head-honcho-who-goes-on-to-start-a-website-with-a-Facebook-Page-that-has-at-least-1,641-Facebook-Likes”.
